Default The Grond Chronicles : GM Racing T1 swaybars installed [Dialup Death]

So I installed the monster GM Racing C5-R T1 swaybars and heim jointed metal end links. It was a real bear to install alone because the front bar is so heavy!!

Well it took me a while but I got the front and rear T1 sways and metal end links on.

Just took it for a high speed blast through some really rough and broken twisties and it handles like a champ - it will shake your fillings loose but it feels like a full blown race car now.

"On Rails" do not even begin to describe the experience - steering is lightening fast and it goes exactly where you point it instantly without being darty and spooky. The combination of shortened and revalved DRM coilovers and T1 sways is just what I wanted. Next I have to get it corner balanced and aligned.

Grond handles like it's glued to the road with velcro!! I love it

Here are the obligatory pictures.

I think you might like it with your current suspension. With the transverse leaf it will not be as firm and will probably corner flat while giving a very comfortable ride. I bought mine from Randy at DRM

Nice job on the install and congrats on the ECS drivetrain installation. How does the new trans and gearing feel?

If you cut code (computer code, that is) you will know what it means. It's geek talk - I can relate
